Heavy rain and gusty winds to start; turning much cooler tonight and into Valentine’s Day

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Widespread rain with isolated heavy downpours are going to continue throughout our morning. Patchy fog is also building in for the morning commute. Along with the rain and the fog, winds are quite gusty. Wind gusts can reach 45 MPH for a few areas this morning.

By the afternoon gusts will decrease to around 30-35 MPH and then by the evening should see gusts around 25 MPH. Winds will switch from the west to the northwest during the afternoon behind the cold front. This will allow cooler temperatures to funnel in. We are starting off with temperatures in the 50s, but by 1 PM we will see temperatures fall in the middle-upper 40s and by 7 PM we will be in the 30s.

Moisture will still be hanging around the area today in the form of scattered showers during the afternoon, we will notice rain switch to snowfall/mixing this evening. Light snow showers will continue overnight where temperatures will fall in the 20s and upper teens. Snow accumulation is very light, but slick roads are possible tonight and throughout tomorrow.

Highs tomorrow will have a hard time reaching the 30s. Most will only be situated in the middle-upper 20s. Wind chill values are suggesting we will feel in the teens overnight and Friday morning temperatures will feel like in the single digits and teens. A chilly night and day is in store, so bring the pets inside!

We will notice during the afternoon tomorrow that the clouds will break apart allowing some sunshine to pop in. The sun won't help warm us up as cold air advection is strong over the area. High pressure will continue to situate itself in our region allowing mostly sunny skies Saturday with a slight chance for rain/snow Sunday. Most of the area will remain dry throughout Monday. Another system strikes back Tuesday allowing a mostly rainy day. Highs will bump into the 40s and lower 50s during the weekend. The start of the workweek temperatures will be in the 50s.
